Students in Biloxi Public Schools will have a full day of school tomorrow, and any scheduling changes for Tuesday will be announced by mid-afternoon.
Dr. Paul A. Tisdale, superintendent of Biloxi Public Schools, made the announcement this evening for those parents wondering how Hurricane Ida might alter school schedules.
Hurricane Ida entered the Gulf of Mexico this afternoon as a Category 2 storm, and at 6 p.m. top winds were near 105 mph. The storm was 445 miles south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River, and moving north-northwest at 12 mph.
"Right now, all students in Biloxi Public Schools should report at their usual time Monday morning," Tisdale said. "We're asking parents to continue to monitor news reports to keep updated on the forecast of this storm. We'll announce any scheduling revisions through the media, through our ConnectEd system, on the district web site and through Windtalker emails."
